Whether it was to stay informed, sing along or simply tune it all out, people kept listening and creators never missed a beat. 

A testament to the ever-growing popularity of K-Pop, BTS is Malaysia’s most-streamed artist of 2020, followed by Justin Bieber and BLACKPINK in the second and third spots. 

Topping the list in 2017 and 2018, Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza is once again Malaysia’s most-streamed local artist of 2020. Coming in second is K-Clique,followed by Faizal TahirYonnyBoii and Naim Daniel, respectively.

Some of the most popular podcasts in Malaysia this year includes Mamak SessionsThe Aida Azlin Show and TED Talks Daily. From catching up with the latest news, deep diving into a world of stories, or following one’s favourite celeb, podcasts have opened up a new world for people while staying at home. Malaysians have also been tuning into podcasts in the early morning and lean towards podcast genres such as Lifestyle & Health,  Society & Culture and Religion & Spirituality.
